Movie Summary

Director:
Lucky McKee
Released:
2012
Rating:
R
The wild beast that dwells within us all boils to the surface in The Woman. A domineering, upper-middle class father abducts a feral woman while out hunting. With his twisted set of ideals, he decides to embark upon a deranged project - to "civilize" her - a decision that he and his family will soon regret. Tearing apart the image of the all-American family, director Lucky McKee and writer Jack Ketchum unleash a savage depiction of the sex war and nature vs civilization. Labeled one of the most controversial films of the year, The Woman is a must for fans of horror.
